I have been looking for a vehicle for 3 months, trying countless makes and models to suit my physical limitations without success until I visited this dealer (a second time). Matthew Purcell was very patient and thoughtful during the whole process, even setting my blue tooth up for me after the sale. I would definitely recommend Matthew if you go to this dealer.
It's hard to find a dealership with integrity. Jim Barkley Toyota is a great place for all your automotive needs! I would never go anywhere else.
"long day to get my car serviced"
Maybe it was a bad day, but I had a very long day at Jim Barkley Toyota last week. They did say it would take 2 hours when I arrived. I do not live that far away, but I did not want to take another day to get my car serviced. My service light was on and I needed new tires. I also got an oil changed. But this took four hours. Jim Barkley did walk past and asked how we were. One man told him to get more help. But he did not respond. I walked around the dealership several times. I looked at trucks since I am hoping to buy a new one in the spring to tow a little camper. I was sitting in the trucks and trying to figure out how the back seats went done and how the back truck covers opened up. Not one salesman showed up to ask if I had any questions. Yes, I am an old lady,, and apparently invisible.
Almost four hours late, finally I was able to settle my bill only to find out that their computers were down. This had been ongoing all day and maybe was the reason why they were so slow in repairing my car. I have been working with computers for a couple of decades, so I understand the issues. But I also got the impression that this was not something unusual, but something ongoing. One of the staff said she wanted to quit. Another complained that they again would have a long day, longer than usual. And one was almost in tears. And the IT guy was out to lunch and could not be reached.
Why do companies not have any plan in place when their computers go down. This was not a electrical issue, the lights were on. I expect someday, the grid will go down in certain areas, but to not have a plan in place is wrong. And if this is an ongoing issue then something needs to be done. Their were people from all over the state and many had traveled more than a few miles.
The last time I was there I asked about a recall issue and they told me that I would have to make an appointment and come back because they did not have the part in stock. Needless to say, no I did not go back. This has not been fixed and they have not even asked about this or other recalls and if they were repaired. You would think that they would have a record somewhere. I hope I never have to go back, and I will not be buying a Toyota truck.
I got new tires and agreed to pay an additional price to have them balanced. They were not balanced.
Now my tires have a flapping noise.
